Reliability, Performance and life cycle costs are real concerns for almost all in-service Civil engineering structures, resulting in increasing life cycle costs. To ensure the structural reliability and performance throughout the life of the structure, Structural Health Monitoring systems were developed. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the process of implementing a damage detection and characterization strategy for engineering structures. The changes to the geometric properties and boundary conditions of a structural system connectivity, which adversely affect the system’s performance. The SHM process involves the observation of a system over time period, the extraction of damage-sensitive features, and the statistical analysis of these features to determine the current state of system health. After extreme events, such as earthquakes or blast loading, SHM is used for rapid condition screening and aims to provide, in near real time, reliable information regarding the integrity of the structure. This workshop gives the basic concepts of damage detection and structural health monitoring systems including Internet Of Things (IOT) for civil engineered structures.
